Thomson Scientific and MPS Technologies have announced a collaborative effort, designed to build links between their library products. MPS has launched ScholarlyStats, a service that consolidates usage reports from multiple platforms to give one view of usage. Thomson Scientific's forthcoming Journal Use Reports will provide libraries with the ability to combine data on usage, citation, and institutional academic research.
Thomson Scientific's Journal Use Reports will be a tool to provide libraries with a 360º snapshot of the utilization of all the journals and serials. This tool will provide Thomson Scientific citation information, and combine it with a library's own usage data for insight into the value of journals through usage, citation, and academic research.
